WWII American and Japanese decks were wood. British were armored.

Today they're armored for all carriers.

Modern Carriers are all steel, and covered w/ an assault-like coating that is both non-slip, fire-******ant, and protective. This coating is often being re-surfaced, and many sailors in past decades got lung cancer from inhaling the particles as they sanded it off (asbestos?)
